What does it mean to be a citizen of somewhere? There are a growing number of citizens of Nowhereisland - people who have chosen to to be part of this new nation, for all sorts of different reasons - for fun, to make a statement, to see what happens, or perhaps to cause trouble!
Anyone can become a citizen, we don't mind what your reason is. There are no tests and no restrictions.
To become a citizen and complete this mission you will need to visit the Nowhereisland website. Go to the Sign Up page where you can register as a citizen.
If you fill in the postal address on the form we will send you a certicate of citizenship. If you are part of a group (eg a school class) who all want to sign up or share an email with someone else, then you or a teacher should contact us direct and we can make special arrangements. You can do all this via the Sign Up page on the website.
While you are on the website have a good look around. There’s more about the Arctic journey, the Declaration made when Nowhereisland was founded, the journey plans for summer 2012 and each week a new person is our Resident Thinker and writes a ‘letter’ to Nowhereisland.
When you become a Nowherian you have joined a growing group (over 3000 people so far) across the world (more than 50 countries so far). But what might it mean to be a citizen of a place you may never visit? And what kind of nation is Nowhereisland: this place that is formed from the stuff of another place and is constantly on the move? Keep these questions in mind as you tackle our other Nowhereisland missions.
Risk overall: Low. This should be easy but take care.
Doing missions on this website can be dangerous. Always get permission before exploring and make sure your plans are reasonably safe. A place that is safe one moment can become dodgy the next so keep your wits about you. We cannot take any responsibility for any injuries or harmful effects resulting from your actions. It's your job to survive your explorations intact.
To increase your chances of success complete our training and safety tips before starting. That way you are more likely to win points and keep your head on.
Sometimes good missions go bad. Please let us know if you have anything to report.
